    K04 Rebuild, how difficult?

    You need to have means of balancing the turbo mate so not a job for the diyer, £300 sounds cheap for a rebuild though. As far as hybrids go you won't need forged internals on a standard map but if you want to use it's full potential then I'd definitely say you'd need a set of con rods. Rob

    Fault Diagnosis time.... (We all love this)

    I would say it'll either be a tyre or more likey another wheel bearing they do 'throw' noise so can be hard to diagnose. Jack the car upon the other 3 corners and spin the wheel listening for roughness and feel any play in the wheel with your hands 10-2 and 12-6. That's the mot method anyway lol

    Overfilled Oil...

    The problem you'll find with over filling oil is it builds up crankcase pressure and can cause the big end bearings to fail, I had it at work last week on a Alfa 156. I'd buy, borrow or steal a 19mm socket and get some out. Saying that you may be ok but I certainly wouldn't want to risk it...
